A musical about teens in love in the 50's! It's California 1959 and greaser Danny Zuko and Australian Sandy Olsson are in love. They spend time at the beach, and when they go back to school, what neither of them knows is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny's the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black leather jacket-wearing greasers while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls led by Rizzo. When they clash at Rydell's first pep rally, Danny isn't the same Danny from the beach. They try to be like each other so they can be together. Written by

Lorna Luft tested for the role of Rizzo. She eventually played the role in a 1980 summer stock tour of the original stage musical. She also went on to play the role of Paulette in Grease 2 (1982). See more »

I'm going back to Australia; I might never see you again.
Don't... don't talk that way, Sandy.
But it's true! I've just had the best summer of my life, and now I have to go away. It isn't fair.

Danny, don't spoil it!
It's not spoiling it, Sandy, it's only making it better.
Danny... is this the end?
Of course not; it's only the beginning.

Grease has to be the best musical off all the time. The wonderful actors and actress' give there characters all they've got and bring out a wonderful performance all the way through the movie especially John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and Didi Conn. And, who can forget the music. Absolutely amazing. It's no wonder that the Grease soundtrack in the best selling musical soundrack ever. (It sure is brilliant.) Grease really is the word. It's fantastic. 10/10
